Kind Living Designs, a Berks County-based youth education provider that focuses on Emotional Intelligence Leadership workshops is hosting the Agent of Change Leadership workshop for tweens grades 4th – 6th to benefit Celia Consentino, a 9-year-old Girl Scout from Wyomissing Hills Elementary School, who was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor on August 16, 2018. Proceeds from the day will benefit Celia and her family.

Kristie Piacine, Owner of Kind Living Designs, shares, “This program allows students to walk away knowing, I CAN make a difference.”

A mini-session of the Improve the World Around You workshop, participants will have fun learning with the design-based leadership games and activities from the Girls Driving for a Difference curriculum. As well, signature Kind Living Designs’ workshop curriculum including intentional mindfulness and empathy-building fundamentals are wrapped into the afternoon. This workshop uses design-thinking to empower students to become Agents of Change. The creative problem solving aspect of design-thinking leaves space to discover passions and interests while building the emotional intelligence and self-esteem of the participants. Small groups, working together, will determine how to use leadership style to create social change. Kids walk away thinking, “I can be a leader. I can make an impact. I can make a difference in this world.”

The students will have older Girl Scouts paired with their groups as Student Helpers.
